Here's a fun fact:

If you charge your LiPo on an Orion charger, and then remove it when it's "done" and put it on a Checkpoint charger, the battery will continue to charge on the CP for an additional 15-20 minutes. It will take between 50-60 mah during that time. The CP's charging algorithm seems to charge the battery a little further than the Orion, but that tiny bit takes an eternity to get into the pack. I guess it's a function of the CC/CV algorithm, and also how far down the charger will go before it shuts off.

I asked Linger about this when I observed it, and he said it's normal for chargers to have a slight variance between them, and how they handle CC/CV.

usually on my cp charger as soon as the battery gets to 8.4 volts i can take it of the charger and run it and its just fine ,dont really need to wait an additional 20 minutes for 50 more milliamps.

No. It doesn't fit without modification. Carbon 3200 has the perfect fit.
